Eliot Cohen was interviewed about his July 10, 2005 article in the Washington Post, “A Hawk Questions Himself as His Son Goes to War.” In the article he re-examines his support for the war in Iraq from three viewpoints: the commentator who had advocated the war, a military historian, and as a father. His son is a second lieutenant in the Army who would be going to Iraq soon. He discussed his background, including membership on the Defense Policy Advisory Board, seminars with military officers, and work as a military historian and professor. He also discussed his reasons for supporting the war and how he feels it has been carried out incompetently. close
